The Power of Stories for Social Change
The storytelling of everyday people can serve as a living record of the human experience. By creating oral and visual histories we remove the filter of an accepted narrative about an individual's or a community's experience.
Stories surround us but what do they do beyond entertain us? How do stories bring about social change? Explore the use of stories in the classroom and in the community and bring the results to a day of "stories for social change" in public education.
